Utopia


Published May 25, 2007


LibriVox recording of Utopia, by Thomas More. Read by Jenilee.

This book is all about the fictional country called Utopia. It is a country with an ‘ideal’ form of communism, in which everything really does belong to everybody, everyone does the work they want to, and everyone is alright with that. This country uses gold for chamber pots and prison chains, pearls and diamonds for children’s playthings, and requires that a man and a woman see each other exactly as they are, naked, before getting married. This book gave the word 'utopia' the meaning of a perfect society, while the Greek word actually means ‘no place’. Enjoy listening to this story about a country that really is too good to be true. (Summary by Jenilee.)

Subject: Good job!
Jenilee has a pleasant voice and read expressively and at the right speed. I couldn't have asked for more.

Subject: Monotone
Accurate reading, but largely monotone and therefore hard to stay focus on this philosophical work.
